Apart but Together – Pat Higgins

Pat Higgins and his usual suspects got together remotely, to record this song that he had written for the Front Line Workers. They managed it with the barest of technical equipment.
Pat says, wherever you are in this world if you appreciate the song, and the effort of front line workers please donate to your local frontline charity.
Song Written and sung by Pat Higgins, with Ecki Krupp, Marc O’Hare, Ladina Jeisy, Marc Jeisy and Kate Higgins.

Dooneen Mine Allihies

Our Beara 3K a day walk took us on a return trip to Dooneen. Which was the first place where Copper was extracted in the 19th Century. The initial adit went in from the sea shore and is still visible today, it actually goes through to the beach on the other side, however it is now blocked…. The Dooneen mine later had an engine pump house built, as it was always full of water. The mine never made a profit and was closed down. The engine house was demolished and the stone was used to build a local house.
There are some beautiful rocks and cliffs down there, amazing.
Thanks for all the likes and shares and especially the comments. A good few hours goes into the making of one of these films.
Cheers, Slainte and stay safe.
